Felicity Huffman’s younger daughter Georgia got into Vassar, will attend next year

In retrospect, I’m sort of mad at myself for not applying to any all-girls colleges. It just seemed like the antithesis of what I wanted for my college experience, to be surrounded by all women. But, as I said, in retrospect, that might have been a cool experience to have. Graduates of the “Seven Sister” schools – Mount Holyoke, Vassar, Wellesley, Smith, Radcliffe, Bryn Mawr and Barnard – seem to do cool things with their lives. Now it seems like one “celebrity child” is getting a happy ending at one of those Seven Sister colleges following her parents’ college-admissions scheme. Felicity Huffman’s younger daughter, Georgia Macy, will attend Vassar next year.

Felicity Huffman and William H. Macy‘s younger daughter is apparently going to college, the old-fashioned way. Georgia Macy, 17, recently updated her Instagram account to say she’ll be heading to Vassar College — just a couple of months after her mom was released from prison for her role in the massive college admissions scandal.

The former “Desperate Housewives” star spent 11 days behind bars for paying a $15,000 bribe to boost the SAT scores of her older daughter, 19-year-old Sophia Macy. Prosecutors said she made similar arrangements for Georgia, but didn’t follow through. Sophia graduated from the Los Angeles High School of the Arts in June, but her post-high school plans aren’t clear. Her father said in a letter to the judge in Huffman’s case that Sophia, an aspiring actress, had been given a shot to audition at a school that “ironically doesn’t require SAT scores” — but that the offer was rescinded amid the scandal.

It seems her sister will be heading to Poughkeepsie as part of Vassar’s class of 2024. On top of updating her profile, Georgia posted a story on her Instagram with Vassar’s logo, according to TMZ.

That’s pretty awesome for Georgia and I hope she’s allowed to go to Vassar and thrive on her own merits, without her mom breathing down her neck and trying to “help.” I wonder if Georgia’s Vassar application was one of the reasons why Felicity pleaded guilty and took the plea deal too – she wanted to save both daughters’ chances to attend college. But only Georgia has gotten in anywhere. While Sophia’s audition offer was rescinded in the wake of Operation Varsity Blues, I wonder if she’s applying anywhere else nowadays?

    This makes me so sad for the elder daughter.

  2. Becklu says:

    What is sad about this is- I don’t believe she earned it, I think her parents paid her way in. And everyone else will too- so if she did the work and earned her place she is doubted if she didn’t then she shouldn’t be there

    • deezee says:

      I don’t think so. It was documented that they didn’t go through with anyhting for their younger daugher because it seemed obvious that she would be able to get in on her own merit without help.

      This only goes to make the older daughter feel worse that her parents had less faith in her than her younger sister.

    Yay, Vassar! I went there and learned a ton. It’s been coed since 1969, though.

  4. Katie says:

    Vassar isn’t an all-girls school!

  5. lucy2 says:

    I hope she is a good student and does well, because unfortunately for her, I think everyone else in her classes is going to have some suspicion.

  6. Misty says:

    The oldest can go to jr college and transfer to a university like a lot of us do in California. Get her mandatory classes out of the way, by the time she’s ready to transfer it’ll quiet down for her.

  7. Mumzy says:

    Yes, Vassar has long been coed. My daughter is currently a senior and has gotten a stellar education. I don’t think Georgia will be paid any attention there—it’s a very low-key social environment and any sort of display of wealth or influence is really frowned upon by students.
